Tip

I use whatever veggies I have in the fridge, but as a guide, these work well: brocolli, mushroom, carrot, zucchini, celery and corn.

    I was sceptical of this, especially with all the veg, but my 2 and 5 year old boys didn’t even notice!!! Best tuna bake ever! I’ll only now make this “healthier” version loaded with veg tmrc_emoticons.;) I only had carrot zuchini celery and pumpkin - it was super!

    Wow! This recipe is so easy and the flavour better than anything I have tasted in a tuna bake! I have just received my thermoserver so this was the first time of using it. How easy to cook pasta in it! This recipe is great!

    This was a huge hit - I haven't made a tuna bake in years but my tuna hating husband had it for dinner and lunch and my veg phobic toddler gobbled it up! Definitely will put this on our menu plan.

    Oh and I was loving the pasta cooking method - its the first time I've used the thermoserver and gosh it works a treat - so convenient and easy! 

    Thanks for sharing a winner recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by Jade8 on 3. February 2016 - 14:41.

    This worked out really well, I only added the cheese as a topping no cornflakes and didnt add any cheese into pasta mixture. Definitely still cheesy enough!

    I used brown rice I instead of pasta . And didn't do the topping, just mixed rice, tuna and sauce together. Nice and simple.

    For a tuna bake it was really good. The cheese veg sauce could be used for anything and instead of tuna when I had leftovers i added bacon.
